  • Second Grade Beethoven Body Percussion

    The second-grade students have been working really hard at this piece for quite a while now, and finally recorded it! Families can see what their child has been doing in music class AND it is also a great reminder that music still lives on Nantucket!

Nurse's Note

  • This year our school will be participating in the BinaxNow testing program offered through the State.

    The BinaxNow is a rapid antigen test that is done by a nasal swab. We will be using the BinaxNow for symptomatic testing and the Test and Stay program. If your student has mild symptoms, the BinaxNow will be used as a tool to help determine if your student can stay in school or go for further testing. The Test and Stay program is used when your student is deemed a close contact from someone positive in school. The BinaxNow test will be administered in school for 5-7 days and as long as the test is negative and your student is asymptomatic, then he/she can stay in school instead of having to quarantine at home.

    The Test and Stay program will be used for school close contacts only. If your student was exposed outside of the school setting, then he/she would follow the DPH guidelines for quarantine. A consent form has gone home with your student. It is very important that you complete the form and return it as soon as possible. The consent allows our nurses to administer the BinaxNow test. If we have no consent, then your student cannot participate.
